should i switch to Gigabyte 580GTX SC or MSI Hawk 7870
or keep my SLI
i am not expecting any performance gains or noticeable gains
i just dnt wana see performance drops if i switch
sli 460GTX is equal/close to 580GTX somewhat games which i usually play are BF2, BF3, MW2, MW3, Crysis 2, medal of honor, NFS Metro2033 not into starategic games or other similar games ... i also dnt play every title ...
and obviously ill overclock which ever gpu ill buy ... so what u guys suggets me
with current ctatlyst 12.11 every 7xxx series gpu has gained performace especially 7870 gained upto 10% as per many reviews ... but i dnt see direct comparison with 580gtx ...
so any suggestions ...

would have been more helpful had you at least linked to your original post.

Get the single 7870 if you can afford it.

30-40% increase in performance in bf3 with 12.11 beta. Holy ###.

Also, some nice goodies if you're shopping for a 7xxx.

A 7870 on 12.11 performs equivalent to a 7970 on 12.9..... WHAT?

WELL DONE AMD!

I wonder how this will affect games like pCars and rFactor2. I got a feeling that pCars may really benefit from the new driver but rFactor2 not so much. Time to go delete some drivers wink.gif That's always fun frown.gif

Man, I doubt AMD will optimize drivers for pCARS until release. Builds are way too sporadic for AMD to focus on.

I'm hitting F5 waiting for the download link to appear.

GTP REP!

would those game freebies include us existing 7XXX series owners? or only to the new ones?

Probably just new. I still haven't received my free game code from the place I bought my 7870 from. I'd like to at least get one freebie frown.gif

Is this the right page?

Can anyone confirm the performance increase yet?

Yes, that is the right page and 12.11 is up.
post #1939 of 4099
I had to sell my main gaming unit the other day to pay the bills. My 7870 went with it. Can somebody confirm if AMD fixed the GPU usage issue in the new drivers? If they fix it when I rebuild I will get the 7870. If they don't fix it I will get something else.

3DMark11 went from 6995 (stock clocks) to 7985 with 12.11 Beta drivers. I was previously using 12.9. biggrin.gif
